So glad he's home & that is making him happier. I didn't know that about locust trees, so thank you for that tip.Enjoy your day w/him & let him know how many people think he's extra special.You were such a trooper through all this-Happy Easter!
Oh they are BAAAD. The vet said a friend of his just got poked in the back with one once and it swelled up so bad he had to get a surgery.
Thank you I will :)
So happy to here reily is home and doing better glad the eye removal is done and over with. He looks happy to be home iam sure your happy to have him home also. Have fun riding your boy and spoiling him. Have a happy easter spirit88.
It's all so much easier from here... until I see someone and they go "OMIGOSH what happened!!" all dramatic like. Guess I'll have to get used to that.
Happy Easter to both of you as well!!
I'm making another thread in a minute on the photos forum of all the 'fun' photos, but today was amazing!! My horse was 110% back to himself! (Except maybe alittle more spoiled than before... haha) I made him a little 'cake' to celebrate his birthday and we grazed a little before riding for our first time in three weeks! He was PERFECT (granted we only walked though... hehe). I got on bareback, snaffle bit and no spurs (I ride in spurs for 'fine tuning' but figured we could skip today) and used very little rein and he responded perfect. We wandered around the arena for about 5 minutes and then I got off and we played dress up :) (look for my next thread heheheh)
Now for the 'non-fun' photos. Reily had his surgery this Friday, so we are two days after surgery.
Here's his eye today:
Side note... the vet didn't think I would be able to clean, let alone touch his 'eye' for these next two weeks. The day Reily came home I could lightly pet over his eye (didn't want to do anymore) and he hasn't been 'sensitive' in that area when it comes to petting or scratching him.
Hope everyone has a very happy Easter!! Don't forget to eat some extra chocolate bunnies today ;)
